Easy Peach Cobbler

(from Southern Living)

1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 cups sugar (divided)

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 cup milk

2 16-ounce bags frozen peaches or 4 cups fresh peaches

1 tablespoon lemon juice

cinnamon or nutmeg (optional)

Place butter in a 13x9 baking dish. Place in oven and preheat oven to 375. Keep an eye on it so the butter will melt but not burn. Meanwhile, dump (seriously!) the flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and milk in a bowl and mix just enough to wet the dry ingredients. Don't over-stir.

Remove the baking pan from the oven, if you haven't already, and pour the flour mixture over the butter. Do NOT stir or mix with the butter. Let rest while you prepare the peaches.

Pour peaches in a pot with the remaining 1 cup sugar and the lemon juice. Bring to a boil. Spoon over top of the dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg, or both if you wish. Bake 40-45 minutes or until lightly brown.
